In Sickness & In Health

A Piacere musica de camera

Often recited in traditional marriage vows, “In Sickness and In Health” is a universal and inevitable reality that can be an inconvenient and recurring confrontation during our temporal residence on hotel Earth. While composing his third to last string quartet, Beethoven, undoubtedly one of the colossal figures in music history yet a mere mortal like the rest of us, barely survived a severe gastric ailment and thankfully completed the work also known as the Heiliger Dankgesang , a holy song of thanksgiving. In good health, the joy of life can also be expressed through song and dance. The refreshing feeling of springtime happiness and Czech folk melodies can be heard throughout Dvorak’s celebrated masterpiece of the piano joining forces with string quartet, Piano Quintet in A major, op. 81. Come experience the thankfulness and celebration of life through these masterpieces with A Piacere Musica da Camera.

Beethoven String Quartet No.15 in A minor, op.132 “Heiliger Dankgesang” Dvořák Piano Quintet No. 2 in A major, op. 81
